Special Session on

Evolutionary Computation for Creative Intelligence

Aim and Scope

Evolutionary Computation has been mainly considered as an optimization technique. Nevertheless, in the last decade a number of researchers have demonstrated their capabilities when creativity is required: creativity when dealing with aesthetic and also when trying to envision new solutions to problems.

The aim of this special session is to reflect the most recent advances of EC for Computational Creativity, with the goal to enhance autonomous creative systems as well as human creativity. This session will allow researchers to share experiences and present their new ways for taking advantage of EC techniques in Creativity.

High quality paper submissions which demonstrate novelty in terms of methodology, application or both, are strongly encouraged. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, EC technologies in the following aspects:

    • Envisioning new means for creativity when facing hard problems
    • Algorithmic design in creative intelligence
    • Optimization and creativity
    • Generation of Music, Visual Art, Architecture and Design
    • Development of hardware for creative systems
    • Assistance of human creativity
    • Computational aesthetics
    • Emotion response
    • Human-machine creativity
    • Creative Programming with EC

Paper Submission

Prospective authors are invited to contribute their papers to Special Session on Computational Intelligence in Communications and Networking. All papers are to be submitted electronically through the IEEE CEC 2013 main website: http://www.cec2013.org/.
